Motherboard NO Boot

PC been working fine, turned on recently and NO GO (just lights and fans come on). I took PC apart, discovered Harddrive has gone (appears to be internal motor). Replaced Harddrive. Computer still does boot up. When I hook the hard drive up Ribbon and Power, the harddrive no go, but when I remove ribbon, the harddrive - I can feel it turn / run. I tried replacing parts (power supply, ribbons, etc.), but still no boot (bios, etc.)

    Even with a harddrive in the PC, the computer should give some beeps when started, and also allow for me to go into the BIOS set up ??

Have you made sure that the new hard drive is set to the same settings that the old one was ie master or slave and that the ribbon is attached the same way

You can remove components from the pc and try to switch it on and see if it works.

eg.I would try a different power supply.
Then try different ram,
Then disconnect the Harddrive

If when you remove a component the pc starts, it's that component thats the problem

Computer does not boot


If you computer over heated, this could have caused the board or power supply to short. I would first start by trying a new power supply unit (since this is cheapest of the options). If that does not work then try replacing the motherboard and/or processor. Since you not getting any power, my guess is motherboard or power supply unit.

I replaced the heatsink fan it booted up like three times.tryed put load xp wouldnt boot up from cd rom.Iset boot priority to cdrom.I tryed to reset jumper took out bat all night.the first time it booted...


Well, first you should check wether the fan actually starts when you turn on the pc. If it doesnt your cpu will be overheated in no-time, causing the pc to reboot. That fan then probably has the wrong voltage, or requires to much power, which your power supply may not be able to provide.

If it works, you should try to find out how powerful this fan is, meaning how much air it moves per minute. If this fan is less powerful than the previous one, your cpu will be overheated.

If neither of these solutions apply, I guess you should contact your vendor and request replacement. It may be just the fan that's broken.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.

Stops booting


Did you remove the components that you upgraded, and try adding them back one by one?

Will it give you a POST screen?

Does it Beep at boot time? If it is noisy try moving it to another room.

Describe the original components and then the ones that you upgraded in detail. This will allow us to better troubleshoot the problem.

Please god help me.


Did you upgrade your heatsink and fan when you overclocked? If not, your cpu probably got too hot and burned up.

Computer powers off while booting, green light stays on!


1. check the cpu fan is properly working with normal speed..

2. go to bios setup and restore all settings to default.

3. if windows start and problem comes after some time , then it might be virus. so, go for a virus scan.
